We stopped at Trebah Gardens one morning in early May because we'd heard the rare Handkerchief Tree (originally from China) was in bloom. We were not disappointed. The tree was heavy with fluttering pure-white bracts, that looked like birds wings when the breeze blew threw them. We also enjoyed the late-blooming Rhododendron and the other Champion trees in the garden... More

Visited the gardens last week with my husband but really wished our grandchildren had gone with us as know they would have loved it! We got there early - they open at 10am and I think it's better to get there before the coach trips etc as we wandered around and it was just so peaceful - the plants and... More

A stunning privately owned garden leading down to the Helford Estuary.There is access to the adjoining beach from where a division of US service men sailed for Omaha beach on D-Day

I have been to Trebah Gardens many times, but not since the owner died a few years ago. We took my brother and sister-in-law there last week when they were visiting us on holiday. The gardens are stunning and very unusual and the history is interesting, however it cost £36 for the four of us (one senior) and that, in... More

Lots to see. Visit enhanced by the lovely Helen who gave great advice on arrival and was later very patient with our children counting out their money in the shop!

The only thing that this garden would benefit from is a lot more signs along the roads in all directions directing you to it as it was murder to find and we ended up the other side of it before we saw any - Cornwall CC please note and spend a bit of the EU funding on this! The garden... More

I have loved this garden for years. Massive gunnera manticata and lots of water. Just my sort of place. However having not been there for nearly half a decade I was surprised by how much change has taken place. The good news is the adding of additional walkways and the extensive use of newzealand tree ferns has only made the... More

We loved this garden! So many different areas. The flowers were beautiful. The garden moves down to the beach which is stunning. Well worth a visit!

Trebah fulfilled all expectations- friends had said "You must go". We went and were blown away by the beauty. The ferns and trees together with the water and the stunning views make this the most beautiful and tranquil place. We found it more restful than Heligan and for me to wander down to the beach for an ice cream was... More

These are beautiful gardens with stunning views. There is also the bonus of an ice-cream on their own private beach . So much to see that we took advantage of the free return within 1 week. We also used the 2-1 offer from Gardeners World magazine. The rhododendrons & azaleas were stunning. There were also several areas of bluebells.We also... More
